Director Michael Bay has offered another hint of the action on the set of Transformers: Dark of the Moon, giving fans a photo of Shia LaBeouf and Rosie Huntington-Whiteley hard at work, climbing around on a huge engine while he directs them via a megaphone. You can check out the image below, as well as a new statement from Bay that promises this last sequel to be the best of the three:
For the first time, Michael Bay has come forward to let fans know that he thinks Transformers: Revenge of the Fallen is a mess. But he promises to make up for that with Transformers: Dark of the Moon, which he claims is a superior film to the past two releases. It will also be his last Transformers outing.
It was kind of a mess, wasn't it? Look, the movie had some good things in it and it was entertaining and it did very well, but it also failed in some key ways. I learned from it. And now with this third movie we're going back to basics and I absolutely believe this is going to be a much better film than the second one. I'm still having fun and especially with this movie. Look, we got burned on the last movie. The big thing was the writers' strike, it hurt the film and it made it hard on everybody. We had three weeks to get our story and, really, we were going into the movie without a script. It's tough to do that. It was too big of a movie. There were too many endings or too many things that felt like endings. There was so much animation [in the visual effects postproduction work], too, and we ran out of time. We used the schedule of the first movie for the second movie but on the second one way more labor was needed for the animation. And then it felt like we were writing the script in the edit room, trying to put together a story."
